** Undertow Orchestra ** 2-8-06


Published February 8, 2006


Undertow Orchestra

The undertow collective began in 1997 as a collection of independent artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers and creative managers sharing a studio and rehearsal space in the old garment warehouse district of downtown saint louis, missouri. we believed then, as we do now, that today's rapidly evolving technology is enabling creative expression like only a few times in history, and when shared among the like-minded, the technology becomes more than a tool - it becomes a catalyst for art.

we also believed then, as we do now, that music, film and design are different children from the same parents, and there's a lot to be said for blurring the lines.

finally, we think contemporary culture is heavily corporatized and commodified, and the most interesting creativity now lives in the fringes and margins of the independent creative spirit. we hope to continue working with artists who inspire, compel and move us to fall in love with their art. money is only a secondary means to making that happen.

today, the undertow collective operates out of saint louis (record label, design and film production), champaign IL, new york, nashville and london UK (artist management), and boston (producer management + music licensing).

Subject: The Four Musketeers!
Will Johnson (South San Gabriel, Centro-Matic); David Bazan (Pedro the Lion, Headphones, David Bazan's Black Cloud); Mark Eitzel (American Music Club) & Vic Chesnutt teamed up last year on a wee tour through the 'States.

This is the first gig of the tour and their first together - it's a shambolic collection of songs from just about every incarnation of each artist (although I'm no authority on Vic Chesnutt)- including Bazan throwing in a Headphones' 'Slow car Crash' and Johnson offering up 'I See Through You' from Centro-Matic's last record.

Chesnutt nearly steals Eitzel's thunder on the last two tracks but nothing could top the towering 'Johnny Mathis' Feet' - AMC didn't play it the time I saw them so great to hear it again. The others make a pig's ear of Bazan's tunes which is annoying but he's very patient. Johnson stuff is great, I'm going back to 'Vultures Await' to try it again now.

Yes, it's a bit of a mess but the sound quality is fair overall and levels are spot on - great download if you're a fan of any of these guys.
